One of my most hated tasks is cleaning my make up brushes. I try to do it once a week but i find it so boring. I don't know how people will hundreds of brushes do it! Recently i picked up the No7 Make Up Brush Cleanser (£8 185ml) to spot clean my brushes. I always do an intensive clean but because i only own a few brushes, i need to be able to clean them while i'm doing my make up.
For spot cleaning my brushes, i've been using my ELF Brush Cleaner. I only have a small amount of make up brushes and only one of some kinds so if i'm layering another product or colour, i need a clean brush. I grabbed this when Boots were having a 3 for 2 offer on all make up brushes and tools as i'd just run out of my ELF one.
I've found this really easy to use. I just put one pump onto the make up brush and rub the brush in circular motions onto a tissue. I keep doing this until no more colour or product comes off the brush. This has a really clean scent - chemically clean. it's not unpleasant as it means i know my brushes are clean. I use this on brushes with synthetic and natural hairs and it works well with both. For a quick fix, it's great at getting rid of the building up make up and colours on your brush. It's obviously only meant to be used for when you don't have the time to do an intensive, deep clean but this gets rid of most of it.
I will repurchase this when i eventually run out as it does the job. It's not too expensive at £8 and it really seems to be lasting a while.
What do you use to clean your brushes? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
